I left my heart in San Francisco Bay
My hope went much the same way
And my feet were stuck in old Japan.
My love, it goes with you
Though I'm diffused and blue
And the waves crash on the shore.
Take me far away from Cape Fear
The winters are too long and dismal here
Though my love abides with you.
Love, like a cherry tree grows
Love, it ebbs and flows
Down stream just you and me.
You say, North Country winters
Are much too harsh
The snow's chest deep in March
It strips the bark right off the trees.
Take me where the river flows
Take me to where our love grows.
And no one will ever Know.
